Tied up with Ribbon

Good Morning!! It's Sunday morning (wow, this week went by fast).

Last week's May Flowers challenge was wonderful. Lots of players and fabulous cards!! Thanks so much for playing along with us. We just love looking at everyone's talent :)

This week's challenge is pretty much just as easy as last week's. It's called "Tied up with Ribbon". I don't think I'm doing the word 'challenge' much justice here, but I just LOVE ribbon!

This week we have a prize too :) It's an assortment of ribbons chosen by 2RedBananas. We have a GREAT selection of May Arts ribbon. If you've never seen what we have, take a short side trip - Ribbon. To be eligible for the prize, please have your entries linked to this post by Saturday evening, June 7th.

Now for our design teams great creations:




Now it's your turn. Let's see how you use ribbon.

Please link your creation to this post using Mr. Linky. If Mr. Linky isn't visible, which he hasn't been lately, just link your card in the comments of this post. Please link directly to your creation and mention 2RedBananas challenge in your details. When uploading to SCS or PCP use the keyword, 2RedBananas. Thanks so much!

Have a wonderful day!

Lots of great info on the website. Take a few minutes and browse the website, then we'd love to hear if you plan to participate in their challenge as well.

Have a wonderful day!

One lucky person, drawn randomly from the Mr. Linky entries, will get to choose one of the newly released May sets as a prize. You can enter more than once, you just have to make a new creation for each entry :)
Here is the sketch for the challenge:

Fun with Flowers

We have more fun ideas with the sneak peeks for you today. As I was putting these cards on the post, I noticed how much the flowers play such a fun roll in all of them. I just love flowers and incorporate them into my cards as often as possible :)

For this card, Wendy used the "Party Bees" set and really made the flowers a focal point. I just love how she embellished them and that CUTE little bee just sets off the sentiment :)

Silke used "Party Bees" on this card too! I LOVE the colors she used - I want to see a bee in my garden that looks like this one! :)

Another gorgeous card made by Silke :) This one used "Flourish in Thought". There's the fun little flowers accenting the beautiful Flourish!

You can go check out what the other design team member's have on their blogs as well.

One more day to play along in the "Glitter Me Silly" challenge. Please have your project posted using Mr. Linky by tonight, Saturday, May 16th, to be eligible to win some fun glitter.

Have a wonderful Saturday, I might just have to go work in the garden after looking at these beautiful flowers! :) Thanks for coming by.

Lots of Sweets

It's a smorgasbord of sweetness for today's sneak peeks. Today and tomorrow we will be showing you different sets that will be released Monday, May 18th! It's getting close :)

In this card Teresa is showcasing the set "Party Bees" - I just love everything about this card, it's so much fun!!

For this card, Wendy combined two of the wedding sets to create a birthday card - so creative!! The sets she used are, "Tickled Pink" and "Sweetie". Just so cute!!

Here, Jami uses the beautiful "Flourish with Flowers". She used flower-soft for the bouquet and her headpiece, very cool!

Cassie made this fabulous tin using the May Journaling Spot. I love the stars on the inside as well. And she used Smooch ink to ink her stamp, very cool. I can't wait to try that!!
These ladies are creating such fabulous projects!!

Check out the rest of the design team to see what they have to show you :)

Still time to get your glittery creation linked for a chance to win some glitter - Glitter Me Silly.

We will be back tomorrow for more sneak peeks. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
